It's a pub, so don't expect gourmet food. That being said the food is very good value for money. It's a fun and vibey evening out, and the staff is friendly and competent.

Great food, great prices, great atmosphere only to be beaten by the Great staff. Everything that is expected of a local pub/ restaurant can be found here in abundance. A real hidden gem!
